    That is sad.

    I know, you are still in the "starve the beast" mode....got it.


    Like...."tax incentives"....right? You have no problem granting tax breaks to some....via legislation.....but are against.....a Dem plan t do just that.

    Weird.


    again, you are good with "tax incentives".....which is "micro-managing".

    Weird!
    This really has to be an act. Why does he support the bill? because it increases tax revenue and he is a dumbass community agitator.

    But why would we possibly not want to give tax breaks to companies inshoring jobs in addition to taxing those who are outshoring jobs? What's wrong with that?
    So you aren't against subsidies? Isn't that "corporate welfare"? And don't all liberals hate "corporate welfare"? You may think it's a good idea - and maybe it is, but the next time there's a discussion about corporate welfare, any incentive for relocating in the US will be claimed as part of the evil "corporate welfare" that lefties constantly wail about.

    I've said for quite some time that it would be smart to get competitive tax-wise with the global market and liberals always respond with whining about how corporations don't pay their fair share; didn't build that road; shouldn't be entitled to the benefits of our society and infrastructure without getting taxed unmercifully.

    Do liberals really know what they want (aside from just wanting to bitch)?
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    FFS con.....seriously....are you going to argue that classification is NOT "selecting"?

    Good grief.
    Sure it is, tell me how many small businesses like the corner dry cleaner move out of the country? They don't pay the same taxes as large corporations . Any company that is considering moving overseas gets the same treatment regardless of size.

    It's like you're saying corporations - including the people who represent those corporations - should never, ever be held accountable for anything at all.

    Or do you somehow think that there is no such thing as "corporate inertia"?
    Remember the driver behind the wheel, he is a person, not a corporation, he is an employee of a company not THE company. He is the one paying those corporate taxes you want to levy when he purchases something from the store. Cannot believe our education system has gotten to this point.

    So you agree that it does this ultimately by increasing the level of employment, jobs, and US corporations.

    How do you know that bill will increase jobs since none of his policies have worked so far?

    So you argument is that when the employee drives the vehicle on public roads, the vehicle and profits derived from such activity....suddenly become those of the driver, the employee....and therefore the impact upon the roads should be born by that employee?

    From YOUR assumption that the bill will increase revenue......

    Are we not arguing that the bill will have its intended effect, did you NOT just do that?

    Sure, explaining to you your "logic" on what is the corporation and how their use of public roads impacts the infrastructure....is "baiting".

    Don't let the door hit you...
